ELIZABETH LOVICK loves to explore
traditional shawl constructions from
around Europe, and her latest design
for The Knitter is based on the classic
Faroese shape. These comprise two
triangles with a central gusset between
them; the result is that this type of
shawl stays on the shoulders better than
many flat shawls.

PATTERN NOTES
The shawl is knitted from the bottom up.
Each row consists of a five-stitch border,
one triangular ‘wing’, the back gusset, a
second triangular ‘wing’, and a five-stitch
border. Separate charts are given for the
wings and the border. At the shoulders,
extra stitches are decreased in the wings.
Then one border is knitted along the
remaining stitches, removing them, and
the two borders are grafted together.
